About me


I wonder what has brought you to my page? Are your life challenges proving just too much at present, are you looking for something to change? The good news is that all the resources to effect such change are within you rather than outside of you. Locating and working with the power of ‘your-self’ you will be able to effect changes in your everyday life, resolve issues from the past that may be disrupting thought processes and relationships in the present. If you are looking for something to be different in your life I am the therapist for you!


Relationship issues? Let’s look at your primary relationships and how they have shaped the relationship you have with ‘your-self’ and how going forwards this could change. Once we begin to change the relationship with ‘self’ and begin to acknowledge and accept the past one’s life view upon everything and everyone around will start to change also.


I wonder how you hear the word ‘Mindfulness’, it may be unfamiliar to you, something that is possibly not understood and outside of your awareness? For me it was yet another overused word until I started to apply it to my own life. Now I like to interpret the ‘Practice of Mindfulness’ as being really present in the ‘here and now’ of my life and centring my thoughts and feelings in every moment of the day.


Life is even more uncertain right now heightening two of the most significant issues out there in the world today, firstly anxiety which is based in the future, and secondly depression which is firmly rooted in the past. Even though both are very challenging conditions through the use and development of mindfulness and counselling one learns ‘to be in the moment’ and begins to feel and experience life in the present once again.

I am an experienced counsellor/therapist offering sessions for adults, young people, and couples/family members. For every one of my clients, I create a bespoke therapeutic client-led experience to meet their particular needs.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
